and go out and be ruthless. >> yes. that is the lesson of lincoln. in the first inaugural he talked about appealing to the better angels of our nature and then we went to war. he tried. president obama has tried. i think presidents have to change, try to change the culture in which they are placed. in this case, this division that we have in the country isn't going to be healed. it wasn't healed by president clinton. it wasn't healed by president bush. it has not been healed by president obama be . >> you're saying it doesn't matter what he says tomorrow. he should just be ruthless. >> i think he's got to pursue his agenda with way president lincoln did. yes, with relentless commitment. i think the central political miscalculation of his first term is he thought his mere presence would bank those partisan. >> you're going to be saying yada, yada in his head. >> i think the more elegant way to say this -- >> what my client meant to say. >> i think he needs to say he wants unity but not unity at all costs. there's something more important that be just people getting along in this town. they
the other side of the national mall on the walls of the lincoln memorial are inscribed in my opinion some of the finest words ever written by abraham lincoln in which he faced a bitterly divided country and was able to deliver an address that aimed at unity, brought the country together. and you know, while the challenges we face are different than those that lincoln faced, they are still formidable for this president. our country is deeply divided. we've been through a divided election, which is a lot like what abraham lincoln went through. the challenge for the president is to bring the country together, sound a vision for the country that is eloquent and will inspire americans to come together and get behind him and get behind our elected leaders to work for the good of the country. >> it's interesting you mention lincoln. a lot of people believe his second inaugural address is the last time we had a strong inaugural address. brett o'donnell, thank you. appreciate that. >> good to be with you. >>> the parade, the parties, the pomp, the circumstance, we'll dig into it all on this specia

. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest to the president tell us this speech is in the moment and it's going to talk, they hope, credibly, believably about responsibilities ahead. and the prospect for not only bipartisan compromise, and things that didn't seem achievable four years ago. it might be worth reminding us ourselves how the president ended first inaugural address four years ago. scott, the president talked about america being in the midst of a winter of our hardship and he urged the nation to brave icy currents and to endure whatever storms may come. there was a sense of forboding then, a sense of crisis, both economic and otherwise, that white house advisers that he feels is no longer as present now as it was then. so that's part of the optimistic note he'll s
by chance. when lincoln creates -- lincoln creates some really great was but one of the first words he thought about secession. he said that secession is the sugar coating, the impact of this country. lincoln when he first used sugarcoated, the printers of the united states comes to lincoln and said we cannot put this in the official record, the word sugarcoated. and lincoln says i can't imagine any american not knowing what you're saying. lincoln was also, again i'm going back to william safire's influence, one of the first uses of cool, not innocent of temperature but in the sense of being callous, he said, something he said that was cool. that was callous. it was a behavioral thing. so again, those are, a word like cool. obama could come up with a new name of cool. that's another thing. one word and you give it different many. as i said with all these different meanings. and how i did this was i did a lot of reading and i get a lot of use of huge proprietary databases at the library of congress. 19th century database where you can find the original document in which 1807 when jeffer
: and abraham lincoln's, delivered to a nation divided by civil war. >> with malice toward none, with charity for all. >> reporter: a third theme, renewing our commitment to the values of our founding fathers. perhaps it's surprising the president found inspiration in the words of this former a adversa adversary. >> there can be no human rights without human liberty. >> reporter: aides tell us that, although the president disagrees with mr. bush's policy, he's moved by the speech's democratic principles. >> freedom by its nature must be chosen and defended by citizens. >> reporter: a message, aides say, the president will echo today, as he did at the white house last week. >> that most fundamental set of rights, to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> reporter: of all his predecessors, the president says he is most inspired by president lincoln. >> that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. >> reporter: in november, mr. obama screened steven spielberg's movie "lincoln" at the white ho
four years ago. remember when lincoln came into office they were already plotting against him. he had to come in through baltimore and hide at the willard. this president had to come in against mitch mcconnell, the republican leader, saying my number-one goal in life is to get rid of this president. >> and he failed. so i think it's different in some ways and not different in others. i think we are still going to see a very large portion of the republican caucus that believes deeply in what they believe in. that have districts at home that will support them very strongly against the president. but the question is on various issues, can the president put together 30, 40, 50 republicans and pass some of these things? as joe was saying, on immigration, he can do that. chris: for four years the republicans have painted him as a lefty, off in the poll. it seems to me right now, even thote's all temporal, that he's been able to identify the n.r.a. as the far right and to separate them. nerpped, the right is more out of step than he is -- in other words, the right is more out of step than he
